Where’s Aubrey at the Brightbox Theater Raises $500

3 Comments

The good news is that the Brightbox is a fantastic place to see a show. Great sound. Really nice space. Good food and drinks. The bad news is that it’s pretty far from Where’s Aubrey’s Clarke County comfort zone (not to mention New Hampshire).

The enthusiastic but tiny crowd on Friday 7/17 did manage to raise $500 for Dakota’s Dream Animal Rescue, putting Where’s Aubrey’s fundraising total up to a respectable $13,928. Thanks to our concert goers for their generosity and kindness! We had serious competition from local favorite Robbie Limon (playing outside at the new amphitheater just down the street) and the Bluemont Concert Series performer just across the street. Dang. Special thanks to our bestest fans who made the trek out to Winchester. We love playing for you guys.

The show was good. Here’s some video. The first three are from the new CD Chaukori Blue. You can buy a copy of the new CD here.

Allen Kitselman, a fellow Bitter Liberal joined us for four songs, including Devlish Situation.

Playing the Where’s Aubrey show in Berryville on 1.3.15 for C Spout Run was a great joy. Performing in a room where you can hear a pin drop even though there are 80 people there actively listening is simply magical. We love living our music for you.

We had an absolute blast. Gary McGraw of Where's Aubrey

The 2.16.13 Where’s Aubrey Berryville show for the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center was a blast! An enthusiastic audience of just over 100 people raised $1145 for charity.

Great coverage for the benefit. Hope to see you there.
